The State Government has teamed up with Perth's daily newspaper to fund daily aerial shark patrols this summer.

The service is run by Surf Life Saving WA and only operates on weekends and public holidays because of funding contraints.

The Premier Colin Barnett says the recent fatal shark attack south of Perth and a spate of sightings has highlighted the need for regular patrols.
